Kelly and I have owned the Shanty II for 15 years now. We "saved it" from a man that was going to scrap-it (see Chapter 8 in "What Were They Thinking?" by: Doug Ford).

Our intention is to take the boat to shows, and such, introduce people to the history of hydroplanes and promote the restoration of the U-55 Gale V (3) through donations.
